Describing academic qualifications in French
Bonjour a tous,
How would I say, "I am doing a Masters degree in Social Research" in French?
I asked one of my French friends to translate this for me, and she responded with, "je suis actuellement en master de recherche sociale".
Unless I am wrong, this translates into, "I am currently in a Social Research masters".
To be IN a masters sounds a little weird in English, can I not use the verbs to study/to take/to do? (e.g. je prends un master en recherche sociale)
